I drooled all over my keyboard...very nice! Sharpness, contrast, clarity and bokeh all seem very good. Oh, what a great lens this will be on the A900!

Sigh...

Hi Marek,
Great images. Sharpness, colour, contrast all look to be excellent. I like the bokeh samples as well - how does it perform, bokeh wise, in your opinion?

I would love to know your opinions on how it handles - weight, AF accuracy, AF speed, MF ring?

You lucky man

Looks very promising infrastellar!

I too am drooling, although I really shouldn't even think about this lens.

How do you find the SSM with regard to speed, accuracy, noise?

Also, it looks very sharp at 70/3.5, but I thought I'd read that a reviewer had faulted the lens for softness at 70/2.8. What's your opinion?

I will answer all the questions tomorrow with my morning coffee

SSM means everything what it has to be. Apart the speed. Was tracking the cars with C-AF, and its fast. But not that much as 70-200ssm is. But I can say its fast. No noise. Its very accurate. And its sharp even at 2.8. More images tomorrow including the shots against the sun, with very good results.

In more than worthy hands Marek , glad you got it.

Flare control seems nice too. Personally, I'm a little disappointed they didnt bring out the wide angle zoom first, that would be more fitting to our current system IMHO. We have plenty of choices for such similar lenses to the 24-70SSM (though im not denying quality). Few high quality choices for wide angle though... I sit and wait!

Thanks for sharing them :)

WOW ... beautiful. Only problem is that Sonystyle has it for US$1750. That is a heck of a lot of money. But WOOOOOOOOOW!!!

So there's more to it than using it to make your camera look beautiful with it attached, very nice.

Thanks a lot for the photos Marek. It seems to be performing very well in the bokeh department. Sony have a real winner on their hands. Now, if only it was within my reach. Sigh!
